Chataway Lake area includes many excellent small fishing lakes besides
Chataway Lake itself. Abbott, Antler, Billy, Dot, Echo, Gordon,
Gypsum, leRoy, Roscoe, Tyner and Tupper lakes offer a wide variety
of fishing experiences. Depending on which lake you fish, Rainbows
will range from very small to 5 lbs. Some lakes are especially suited
for fly fishing with extensive shoals, weed patches, and a rich
bottom full of scuds and chironomids. Fly fishers will be pleased
to find large Caddisfly hatches along with good quantities of other
insects such as Damsels and Mayflies in Gypsum and Tyner Lakes.
Many of these lakes contain huge numbers of smaller Rainbows, that
provide extremely fast action for young children and fishermen who
want to sharpen up their fly fishing techniques. Roscoe, Billy,
Antler, Dot, Gypsum, Abbott, Gordon and Tyner all have small BCFS
campsites located on them and many have cartop boat launching. Accesses
for the most part are 2wd however some lakes may require 4x4's and
others such as Antler and Echo are hike in lakes. Before visiting
this area, one can stop at a sporting goods store in Merritt for
up to date road and fishing information or visit the lodge at Chataway
Lake. Once you're there it will be hard to leave this great fishing
and camping area. See also Calling Lake,
Pimainus Lake, and Big
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start
fishing a new lake.
